Leroy Franks is a retired American soccer goalkeeper who earned one cap with the U.S. national team in 1957.

Club career

In 1956, Franks played for Brehenys Soccer Club. He then joined St. Louis Kutis S.C., playing for them until 1965. During those years, Kutis won five consecutive National Amateur Cups and the 1957 National Challenge Cup. In 1966, he was with German Sports Club.[1]

National team

After Kutis won the 1957 National Cup, the US Football Association decided to call up the entire team to represent the U.S. in two World Cup qualification games. As a result, Franks earned one cap with the U.S. national team in a June 22, 1957 loss to Canada.[2]

He was inducted into the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame in 1996.[3]
